Managing Indonesia openSUSE community Mirror Infrastructure
Do we still need a mirror?
openSUSE user from Indonesia, https://en.opensuse.org/User:Medwin. Co-admin of Indonesian openSUSE Community website (https://opensuse.id) and community repository (http://repo.opensuse.id). I'm happy that openSUSE Indonesia Community still alive and well with around 4000 facebook group register members.
No video of the event yet, sorry!
Mirror is one of the key success of distributing openSUSE to the user. Availability of the mirror play an important role in the life cycle of a distribution. Indonesia has quite a number of openSUSE users and installations.
Before the Indonesia community had its own mirror, usually iso download and update traffic would be directed to Singapore, Taiwan or Japan. Since May 22 2018 the Community has its own opensuse mirror (https://repo.opensuse.id), and start on November 29 2019 we also manage our own tumbleweed mirror (https://twrepo.opensuse.id). Both of mirror are located in Jakarta Indonesia, in two separated building.
Currently, average visitor of repo.opensuse.id is 811 visitors/day and 207,000 hits/day with around 4TB Tx data monthly, and average visitor of twrepo.opensuse.id is 608 visitors/day and 150,000 hits/day with around 5.5TB Tx data monthly.
We use openSUSE Leap, rsync and nginx for our mirrors. repo.opensuse.id curently keep around 1.7TB repository data, using 4CPU and 16GB of RAM. twrepo.opensuse.id hold around 1.3TB repository data, using 4 CPU and 8GB of RAM.
With the introduction of CDN in openSUSE, how does this affect the usage of repos? We will see what happen in the future :-)
